    I'm 24 and hope to do a PhD at university in a year or two. But I do worry that my social life will somewhat suck on the ladies front! Yes, they'll be other postgrads, but I've always enjoyed socialising with undergrads as they tend to have more fun. :P I'm not especially into girls in their late teens, but I don't really like the idea of barriers. So, would you date a guy/girl in their late 20s? Only in exceptional circumstances? (and despite my tone, I am not actually talking about sex/**** buddies here - more genuine dating)

    I do. 19, dating a 24 year old.

    Most girls at my uni seem to prefer older guys anyway. If you've got gray hair and arthritis you'll be straight in there.

    I'm a guy but I would date someone of any age, gender, race, religion, background If I liked them enough lol, I actually like older women though, think im one of these guys, always fancied someones mum growing up lol.

    I dont think you'd have a problem though, its only natural to want to stick with a funner more lively crowd if thats what you like yourself,

    As long as you can get along with people and make good relations in a friendship capacity there is no reason to say you cant date someone below or beneath your age, within reason

    hope this helps

    Pretty much no. First relationship was with a woman in her late 20s, but she had all the maturity of a toy poodle. Never again.

    Edit: I'm assuming there's a fair reason why I've been negged for this one - I'd greatly appreciate it if you could explain in future, why you believe that my experience is wrong. When your first relationship was when you were 22, with a woman who was 27 and yet had all the emotional maturity and stability of a menstrual schoolgirl, you'd say never again too.

    I wouldn't personally as I think that it is too much of an age gap, although one of my friends is dating a guy 10 years older than her and she seems happy enough. But I think its just a little weird, I would prefer to be with someone closer to my own age.

    No, but if I go to uni in a couple of years and study for 3-4 years (lenght of PhD) then I would be.

    I'd say I'd prefer someone my age, but I would date someone in their late 20s if I really liked them, any older than 30 probably not though.

    18, with someone who is soon to be 25. I don't really see it as an issue, as long as you're both comfortable with each other.
